You can avoid boredom at dinner parties with games couples can play that don’t get too rough or rowdy. Aside from sharing stories, playing couple games is another way to bond and make dinner parties fun by encouraging (if not testing) teamwork and humour between couples.

How Well Do You Know Your Partner?

This game, called “How Well Do You Know Your Partner?” is perfect for couples, whether they’re in a long relationship or are just starting out. The game begins with a host asking questions both parties must answer. Separate the couples, giving each member his or her own answer sheet not to be shared with one another. The game master then asks questions about the couple such as, “Where did you have your first date,” “What is his/her favourite animated movie,” or “Who is his/her favourite relative.” Questions can be very specific or general. After the game master has asked all questions, both parties compare answers, and the couple who gets the most number of matching answers wins.

Blind Item

The game “Blind Item” tests communication between couples and how strongly their thoughts connect. Basically a guessing game, Blind Item involves the participants correctly guessing the blind item, which is written on a card stuck to the participant’s forehead who will be doing the guesswork. The other participant who sees the answer must guide the other in guessing by answering the card-wearing player’s questions. The guesser can ask only questions answerable by “yes” or “no” responses. For example, say the blind item is “hamster.” The guesser must narrow down the guess work by asking categories that relate to the item. For the blind item “hamster,” a primary question is most likely “Is it an animal?” From that, questions could be “Is it wild?” “Is it small?” “Does it make sounds?” To win this game, the couple must finish guessing correctly within a specified time limit. If all couple teams answer within the given time, the pair who used up the least time wins.

Funny Bones

Funny Bones is a timeless game that is perfect for couples. The game mechanics is similar to Twister, except that there is no colour board. The couples themselves will be each other’s “colour board,” joining their body parts and staying connected until the game ends. The game host gives commands regarding which body parts should connect. An example of a Funny Bones command would be “Woman’s left elbow to Man’s right shoulder.” After a series of commands, the couple who does not lose body contact wins.
